This entire article is a great reminder (or a great example, if you're too young to remember the world any other way) of just how amazing all of this is.
Over the long weekend, I've been revisiting some of my favorite short “indie” documentary films. This one shows how the album art for John Mayer's Born & Raised album came into being. Born & Raised is on loop a lot around here, so it's fun to have this peek behind the curtain at the attention to detail that went into the cover.
Another interesting thing about Instagram Stories is that you can capture photos with them quickly while you're "live," and then there's an option from inside the Story to publish it as a Post on your main feed whenever you want. So you can capture a ton of things at an event or throughout your day, and then curate the moments you captured for your main profile.
Batman: The Animated Series is still one of my favorite stories from my childhood. It's getting a Blu-Ray remaster release in October, and when I heard the news yesterday I thought it would be a good time to share this again.
Lots of great stories in here about how the show challenged the notoriously strict rules and traditions in animation at the time; working with Mark Hamill (who played The Joker); and how Harley Quinn premiered in The Animated Series and went on to be a wildly popular DC character.
The prevalence of the "oral history" format among popular online magazines has been interesting to see this year, too.
